KIPP School concentrates on the importance of helping minority student's focus on the future and goals that they will be able to accomplish. One of the goals the school has added is physical education. As the first teacher hired as the physical education teacher I am hoping to accomplish helping students realize the importance of exercise and how it will decrease the amount of child obesity. Oakland, California is an area that does not give students the opportunities that other fortunate children have to play. The school does not have materials that help students explore physical education. This low income school relies on donors like yourself. Physical education needs to be appreciated by the students. This program will not only build health and fitness, but character education for the students. With your support we would be able to implement the Gopher Sports program which stresses character education. This kit would cost $829.00 and includes the following: 12 Utility Balls, 1 30” Parachute, 12 Basketballs, 12 Coated Foam Balls, 6 footballs, 12 soccer balls all with Character education on them. By having this program kit this will just be the beginning of the success that can be given for these students who are hoping that their growth will take them to new places when they graduate. We here at KIPP appreciate the time and support that all of the donors give to us. Without the support from DonorsChoose and donors like you, low-income schools would remain without the needed resources to help students excel. I personally appreciate all that you do and look forward to sending you examples of the students using the new materials that will be donated. Thank You!
